South Capitol condo description

Beautifully hand-crafted, historic casita is close to the city center, affording an opportunity to see the many attractions of Santa Fe on foot. Down the street from the oldest church in the US, galleries, museums, shopping, CASITA ARBOLITA is an ideal location from which to explore the area. It is also a block away from a unique grocery store which offers many local and imported wines. The seat of New Mexico government is also a block away, making it easy for those attending the legislative sessions. Off-street parking provides safety and ease of transport. Nestled between many specialty stores, shopping becomes a joy. A variety of excellent restaurants are down the street, offering an opportunity to explore Santa Fe's culinary offerings. The famous Canyon Road, home of many galleries is blocks away.
The incredible attention to detail inside the casita will charm you and hopefully meet all your vacationing needs. I'm sure you will enjoy your stay at CASITA ARBOLITA!

                            Although I have been coming to Santa Fe for nearly 40 years, this is the first time I stayed in a private casita. And it was a great experience. The owner was extremely gracious and helpful, and the casita was fantastic! It was decorated beautifully and comfortably. The bed was wonderful, the location fabulous, and just about every amenity you would want is there. And, the price is less than you would pay for a moderate hotel room. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

                            My husband and I have been using VRBO for years and have stayed at some amazing places, but Casa Arbolita is the best. The location is wonderful, but the real pleasure is the beautiful and homey environment. This is truly a Santa Fe pueblo style home, filled with many artistic touches while feeling updated and comfortable. Janice was so helpful and had stocked the home with many goodies for us. I only wish we had stayed longer!

                            My husband and I stayed at Casita Arbolita while visiting Santa Fe and the surrounding area for a week. It is perfectly located and within walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, museums, the Square in Old Santa Fe, and Canyon Road. If you rent a car you have easy access to many points of interest outside of the city. It was also great that Janice and her partner gave us such a warm welcome when we arrived!

                            I've stayed at 7 plus VRBO's and never had this kind of service from an owner. Janice goes beyond all expectations,with her attention to detail at this lovely place. Wine, scones, coffee, flowers, organic half and half, shampoos and lotions are there for you. Comfortable furnishings, cleanliness, fantastic location, and all the charm the photos show is there. We enjoyed everything. You can't go wrong staying here.

                            I stayed in the Casita on my own for the 1st week in Santa Fe ( my sister joined me for the 2nd week ) . It was perfect for both situations ... Enough room for the 2 of us , close to town centre, every amenity we needed , tv , DVD , kitchen , car parking .... Would absolutely stay again ! Janice the owner could not have been more helpful ... She was so readily available with info and dropping things it ...it just made the stay in Santa Fe so personal, Thank you Janice !

                            This was my first time to stay at a casita. Janice and Tom have made this a very welcoming and comfortable space. There are nice little touches throughout the casita. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to cook in. The outside patio was private and wonderful. The bed was very comfortable. I will definitely be back.

                            My husband and I have been visiting Santa Fe for almost 40 years. We've stayed just about everywhere in and around the city, our favorites being La Posada and La Fonda (and Bishop's Lodge in the old days, before they went downhill), but we'd never tried a home rental. Having had excellent luck w/VRBO properties over the past few years, and planning a 5-night stay, we opted to try Casita Arbolita. We may never go anywhere else in Santa Fe from now on! The casita is truly a home away from home. It is like a hobbit house: everything you need in a small, efficient, charming space with lots of special touches to welcome you: great coffee beans, scones and fresh fruit, wine, and every kitchen "thingie" you might want. Comfy bed, cozy throws, blazingly fast wi-fi service, good TV reception in two rooms, free telephone service, and a great shower with lovely bath products (the Body Shop clementine body wash was divine). The location could not have been better for us. You're a block-and-a-half away from the Guadalupe Cafe (great breakfast and lunch) and two doors down from that is the venerable Pink Adobe/Dragon Bar. The plaza is a short two-block walk beyond that. There's also a neighborhood market practically across the street from the casita; we heard good things about it but it was closed for renovations during our stay. And Trader Joe's is only a 5-minute drive away (and, most conveniently, right across the street from Maria's). Since we're "old timers" we didn't need a lot of travel/dining recommendations, but Janice was obviously well-up on all the best choices, both old and new. This trip, we were strictly into sampling the best native NM cooking (and margaritas!), so we skipped Geronimo, Rio Chama, The Bull Ring, etc. and instead haunted Maria's, La Choza, Thomasita's, Rancho Chimayo and The Pink. One night, when we were too exhausted to think about either driving or walking anywhere, Janice recommended ordering pizza from Upper Crust, just down the street. It arrived piping hot & was delicious; they also have great salads. Casita Arbolita lived up to its listing description, its listing photos, and then some. The only teeny-tiny negative I can think of is the challenge of making a left turn out of the driveway onto Old Pecos Trail, which must be daunting @ the height of tourist season. Just be brave, be patient, use the mirror provided -- and consider making it a RIGHT turn instead!

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: A massage therapist for the last 24 years, I work both at Ten Thousand Waves, an exquisite Japanese-style spa, and at my own private studio. I came to Santa Fe twelve years ago for a short visit, and fell in love with the land, the sky, the interesting mix of people. An avid rafter, skier, hiker, I love the close proximity of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains. This, coupled with the diverse artistic offerings make this community a unique place to live.

                          Why the Owner Chose South Capitol:
                          My vacation rental is in an ideal location, just blocks from the city center, a wonderful local market, and the artistic center of the city, Canyon Road. My tenants can park off-street and walk to many major restaurants, galleries, and historic landmarks. It is a perfect location for lobbyists and legislators working in the government since the Capital Building is right down the street.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
